InfluxData Product Overview
InfluxData provides InfluxEnterprise and InfluxCloud as Modern Time Series Platforms that have been designed from the ground up to handle metrics and events (time-series data). Customers use our products as their: DevOps Monitoring Platform (Monitoring Infrastructure, SaaS, PaaS, Cloud Infrastructure, Containers, Systems and Applications); IoT Data Platform; and Real-Time Analytics Platform.
InfluxEnterprise and InfluxCloud are built upon the same base architecture. The major differences between InfluxEnterprise and InfluxCloud are that InfluxEnterprise is downloadable software that can run anywhere, whereas InfluxCloud is a managed service offering hosted and managed by InfluxData. InfluxEnterprise and InfluxCloud are built upon an open source core. InfluxEnterprise and InfluxCloud differentiate themselves from the competition by providing the fastest time-to-value, supporting real actions in real-time, and are fast, scalable, available.
InfluxData supports real-time stream processing of the data and storage of the time-series data. The data is stored in the leading Time Series Database, InfluxDB. It handles high write loads, large data set storage, and conserves space through downsampling, automatically expiring and deleting unwanted data as well as backup and restore. Analysis of data is done via a SQL-like query language.
You can graph and visualize your data with integrated open source project Chronograf, and perform ad hoc exploration of your data. It includes support for templates and a library of intelligent, pre-configured dashboards for common data sets. In addition, InfluxDB supports other visualization tools such as Grafana.
InfluxData’s InfluxCloud and InfluxEnterprise are built on an open source core – Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf and Kapacitor (TICK) and are available under the MIT license. However, InfluxCloud and InfluxEnterprise also include proprietary functionality for projects that require high-availability, horizontal scalability, clustering, and additional production-level features.
